Social media engagement refers to a follower’s contact with a social media handle. As, it might be a like, comment or retweet on a platform like Twitter.
One of the most successful teams in the IPL history, Chennai Super Kings, led by MS Dhoni, created a lot of buzz when MS Dhoni took the decision of stepping down from captaincy 2 days before the commencement of IPL 2022. Later, the team’s struggle in the 15th edition had the fans talking.
Royal Challengers Bangalore is one of the most talked-about cricket franchises thanks to the presence of Virat Kohli in the squad. After a strong start from RCB to their IPL 2022 campaign, everyone is hoping that RCB will win the IPL this time.
Rajasthan Royals have left no stone unturned when it comes to social media, as they are the first IPL franchise to respond to almost every trending topic. On top of that, they have a quirky group of players in their squad this time, who have generated a lot of buzz, and both the orange and purple cap holders of IPL 2022 so far are in Rajasthan’s side.
